2015/03/24 Exigency Reporting Requirement – “On December 24, 2013, the Commission issued Order No. 1926, which granted the Postal Service’s exigent price request but limited it to $3.2 billion in additional revenue.[1]  The Commission required that the Postal Service report quarterly (within 30 days after the close of each quarter) on revenues generated by the exigent prices.”

“The Postal Service has filed three quarterly reports in conformance with Order No. 2075.[2]  The fourth and most recent quarterly report (for Quarter 1 of Fiscal Year 2015) was due February 16, 2015.[3]  The Postal Service has not filed the report that was due February 16, 2015, and as of today it is 36 days late.” “The Commission is concerned about the Postal Service’s failure to comply with Order No. 2075, failure to inform the Commission and mailers when its report will be filed, and failure to explain the circumstances that gave rise to the omission.”

“Therefore, the Commission orders the Postal Service to:  comply with Order No. 2075 by filing the quarterly surcharge revenue collection update as soon as practicable, but no later than March 27, 2015”
